Ammonomicon Entry
A mysterious gun that grows in strength on each kill. Substantial power is lost any time its wielder is damaged.

Stories are told of a rebellious android that once used this gun in a conflict deep underground. The handle is marked with two small tick marks.

Polaris is a gun with three levels. Killing enough enemies with the gun causes it to level up, increasing its damage. However, taking damage decreases the gun's level by 1.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Star Friends - If the player also has Stuffed Star, while Stuffed Star is active and Polaris is held, the player continually fires maximum level Polaris shots in all directions.
  • Synergy.png Square Brace - If the player also has Bracket Key or Bionic Leg, Polaris gains 20% increased damage, increased ammo capacity of 700, increased magazine size of 30, increased fire rate when leveled up, and a new appearance.
    • The distance between the two bullets that fire at level 2 is wider with this synergy.
  • Taking any damage, even while the gun is not equipped, will decrease its level.
  • Taking damage while at level 1 resets any progress made towards the next level.
  • Dropping Polaris will reset its level.
  • Level 2 requires killing 11 enemies of any type, while level 3 requires 20.
  • Polaris's level does not affect its selling price.
  • While level 1 and 3 fire a single projectile of varying damage, level 2 fires two. Because level 2 fires two projectiles, items which give shots a chance to gain an effect have double the chance while on level 2.
  • Prior to the Supply Drop Update, Polaris had 400 maximum ammo.
  • The symbol for reaching level 3 appears every time after killing an enemy once Polaris is at level 3 and it has killed a large amount of enemies.
  • If Polaris has been combined with another weapon with Duct Tape it will fire all 3 levels every shot, consuming 3 ammo. It will also not change level if the player takes damage.
  • Prior to the Advanced Gungeons & Draguns Update, Polaris had 0.07 fire rate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This gun is a reference to the Polar Star from Cave Story.
    • Cave Story's weapon leveling mechanics are also the inspiration for this weapon's abilities.
    • The "two small tick marks" refers to Quote ("), the main playable character of the game.
    • The synergy Square Brace is a reference to Curly Brace, a robot character in Cave Story.
    • Its altered appearance due to the Square Brace synergy is identical to the Machine Gun from the same game.
